HMSHost Corp. is bringing upscale Atlanta-style dining to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International (ATL).
Ecco, a midtown restaurant developed by Atlanta’s Fifth Group Restaurants, offers seasonally inspired European cuisine and a variety of wine options. It opened today on Concourse F and is a product of a licensing agreement between HMSHost and Fifth Group Restaurants.
“HMSHost is excited to be working with Fifth Group Restaurants to introduce the mouth-watering offerings of Ecco to international travelers at the world’s busiest airport,” says Anthony Alessi, vice president of business development at HMSHost. “Ecco’s menu will thrill travelers before taking off with an assortment of savory offerings and delicious drinks.”
On the menu, customers will find options such as Prosciutto di Parma, a 16 month ham, and Bresaola, a house-cured organic pork shoulder, along with cheeses, paninis, pasta, pizza and desserts.
“This new restaurant is a fascinating rebirth of the original Ecco, and it is an excellent addition to the Hartsfield-Jackson dining experience,” says Roosevelt Council, deputy general manager of ATL. “It is a place in which travelers will truly enjoy spending time.”
The wine list features Old- and New-World wines, and signature cocktails are available, too.
“Since first opening in 2006, Ecco has grown to become a symbol of hospitality and dining in the Southeast. Delivering that experience to Fifth Group’s hometown airport in Atlanta is very exciting,” says Robby Kukler, partner with Fifth Group Restaurants. “Concourse F is a perfect fit for Ecco because travelers will be exposed to some of Atlanta’s local flair, and Atlantans will find something which they already love.”
